A bike capable of racing over the highest mountain passes in the world. The SLR 9.8 with its Zipp 202 wheelset and SRAM Red groupset is seriously light, as one of the lightest production bikes in the world the SLR 9.8 comes in under the UCI weight limit without compromise to spec or performance.
- New Superlight Racing frame and fork
- Integrated seat tube
- Full high modulus carbon fibre monocoque construction
- FEA developed frame profiles ensure that strength, stiffness and weight are maximised by putting material where it's needed and removing it where it isn't
- Down tube shaped for the optimum lightweight, stiffness and strength
- Seat stays have a combination of flat inside and curved outside surfaces for enhanced airflow interaction between the frame and wheel and narrow profile for reduced weight and shock absorption
- Mould design incorporates one piece BB30 bottom bracket and optimized oversize box section chainstays with steep taper at dropout for maximized power transfer and strength
- Clever full internal cable routing offers airflow enhancement and clean lines without the weight penalty of conventional routing
- Stable, predictable geometry to cope will all race situations
- Full carbon fork with blade profiles designed for steering precision and lightweight and a tapered steerer for further increased stiffness and steering precision
So, I want to start building a new bike for next year, I wanted something I dont see on the road very often so decided to go with one of this frames, boardman slr 9.8 or argon 18 gallium pro, both 2013, they both look solid but I havent ridden any of them....
If you have experience with any of thi ... Read More »
